Why we created Dayflash?

We published a short YouTube video to explain our motivation for creating Dayflash. Check it out...https://youtu.be/aaklXEojlEg

How do I upload a photo?

Go to the Dayflash camera. Swipe left or tap the button located on the bottom left corner of the camera (the button that shows a number on it). Then tap the "Upload photo" button, which will be located at the bottom left corner on your screen.

Why does my horizontal photo automatically rotate and display fullscreen? Users will tilt their phone to view my photo in this case. However, I see some horizontal photos are not rotated.

Dayflash displays photos in an immersive, fullscreen style by default. If the size of the horizontal image being uploaded is fully horizontal (i.e., the aspect ratio is greater than 4:3), then the image shared will be rotated and displayed in fullscreen style. In any other case, the image will not rotate. Fullscreen display style is part of what makes Dayflash different and special. An update might be released in the future so you can control the auto-rotation behavior.

What happens to my photos after sharing?

Photos that you share stay on the Dayflash part of your profile for 24 hours. After 24 hours, you can go to your pin page (by tapping on the small grey pin button that's on your profile) and there you can choose to pin select photos to your profile history so that other people can see your pinned photos when they visit your profile page.

My photos are no longer showing on my profile. How do I display them?

This is related to the previous question. Please tap the small grey pin button on your profile. The pin button is located on the right side of where the "HISTORY" label is on your profile. Photos you share stay on the Dayflash part of your profile for 24 hours and after 24 hours they automatically move to your pin page that only you can see so you can choose which photos you want to keep displayed on your profile.

Are there hashtags?

Hashtags are NOT supported on posts. Search and discovery on Dayflash is powered by the KEYWORDS you add to your account when you edit your profile. Be sure to add popular keywords as well as niche keywords that are relevant to your account, so that more people can discover your account via Explore, Suggested Users and Search.

To set keywords to your account, simply go to your profile, tap Edit Profile, and then add keywords.

What are Karma Boosts and Alien Encounters on Dayflash?

You may encounter an alien 👽 on Dayflash at any time as you’re viewing photos and videos on your Home feed, Explore feed, or Trending Now feed. If you do encounter an alien on any of these three feeds, that alien will temporarily Karma Boost your Dayflash to the top of Explore so more users can see the photos/videos you shared today! You’ll encounter an alien whenever you’ve collected a lot of karma throughout the day by sharing, viewing and engaging with fresh photos/videos from lots of Dayflash users. You can encounter an alien every day. And you'll get notified each time you receive a Karma Boost from an alien. Posts with a Karma Boost are displayed on Explore with a shooting star. 💫

To qualify for an alien encounter on Dayflash, your account must be public, must have at least 50 followers, must follow the community guidelines, and must have a positive reputation within the community on Dayflash.
